Here's Gon Blow, the latest from Cakes Da Killa's debut studio album, Hedonism. Cakes told Vibe: "For me, the track is all about movement, so we included some B-roll from a party Eric and I threw. Ben’s animations helped add some dance sequences to the video, because dance culture influences my music a lot, and I feel there is a disconnect between that and rap culture lately."

Fly Young Red wants you to know about Lorraine: "This year has been a real difficult year for trans violence... I wanted to do something about it. Growing up in the LGBT community, we meet all different kinds of trans women. I wanted to tell the story of 4 different girls that I knew. I wanted to give that girl a name Lorraine. I feel like if we can humanize the transgender woman instead of sexualizing her, I feel like people will start to care more."

He says: "This song wouldn’t exist if I wasn’t a gay artist that’s out and proud, and able to write about the feelings and emotions I’m going through. It’s sort of a sad lyric with a happy beat, and that’s really the tone I’m setting for my music." Get it.

Director Ciaran Lyons: "What grabbed me was the underlying idea of the different responses elicited by the chaos of the modern world. The desire to escape from the real world into a fantasy paradise vs. the possibility of standing strong and separate from all the madness and cruelty, in the hope of preserving something better."

"Great chunks of my past, detaching themselves like melting icebergs..."

Doctor Who is over fifty years old. We expect to see its cast and crew, increasingly, in the obituary pages.

But knowing that doesn't make it suck any less, particularly when it's someone as barmy and lovely as Deborah Watling, who has passed away aged 69.

For many years, most of her episodes were lost, destroyed by the BBC. It's comforting to know that in her latter years she enjoyed the return of two entire stories, The Web of Fear and Enemy of the World, and the interest and acclaim that entailed.

She'll be missed.
